On behalf of the Australian Greens I extend our deepest sympathies to all those who have lost loved ones in yesterday's plane crash in the French Alps.
I am particularly sad to hear that a Victorian woman and her adult son have been killed. Our hearts go out to their family and friends.
We all travel; we've got friends who travel, children who travel. This is a tragedy that hits home because so many people have died, many of them young, and it appears so random. We get the sense that in other circumstances, it could have been any one of us or our family or friends.
Our thoughts are with the Victorian family and community of the mother and son who've died.
